The Israeli Cabinet approved a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an Israeli-Hezbollah cease-fire. On Sunday, the Cabinet voted 24-0, with one abstention, to approve the resolution, which is scheduled to take effect Monday morning. Lebanon’s government has already approved the resolution. Hezbollah’s leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, announced Saturday his militia would abide by the truce but also said it reserved the right to fight Israeli troops that remain within Lebanon.
